Potassium Bitartrate – common household cooking ingredient!

Post  bejoy on Mon Nov 07, 2016 6:34 am

Cream of Tartar’s chemical name is potassium bitartrate/potassium hydrogen tartrate, which having chemical formula of KC4H5O6, is a byproduct of winemaking. Cream of Tartar crystallizes in wine casks during the fermentation of grape juice, and can precipitate out of wine in bottles. The crystals (wine diamonds) will often form on the underside of a cork in wine-filled bottles that have been stored at temperatures below 10 °C (50 °F), and will seldom, if ever, dissolve naturally into the wine.
